    I wanted to let you know that creating a video for PragerU is a really really disturbing choice. They have been creating propaganda to target kids over the last month, since Parkland. Their comments are full of people fantasizing about hurting children.

    Please consider that next time you ally with a pro-Trump media outlet.

    PragerU is nuts. Where/when did LG/FRK cooperate with them? I didn’t see anything on the site

    Hi eve,
    I was wondering if you could provide a link to the PragerU videos that you think are propaganda targeting children. I have watched many of their videos and found them to be fact based videos made with a conservative/libertarian viewpoint but never saw anything that was alarming or controversial.
    And YouTube commenters are almost always negative.

    Haha, PragerU “fact base”?? ohgod. They’re radical racist, anti-environment, anti-feminism, muslim-hating, anti-gay hate organization.

    “promotes fossil fuels as being “the greenest energy”. It has called wealth income inequality “good”. In a multitude of ill-informed videos, it furthermore espouses climate change denialism, militarism and American exceptionalism ”

    ” he wrote an article that was horribly titled “Sandusky Abused Children, NCAA Abuses History” in which he attacked the NCAA for stripping Penn State of their football wins in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky pedophilia scandal.”

    “he writes that being falsely accused of rape is just as bad, if not worse, than actual rape”

    I hope free range kids has nothing to do with them. If Eve can provide a case were they have I’d be deeply disturbed!
